Priscilla Young

Postpartum Doula based in Scituate, MA

My name is Priscilla Young and I’ve been working as a postpartum doula for 13 years. I completed my DONA postpartum doula training in 2010. I previously worked as a birth doula since 2002. My favorite part of the birth doula work has always been visiting the family, after the baby has arrived, and helping with the process of settling into parenthood. This has inspired me to focus exclusively on postpartum work.

The first several weeks of your baby’s life are precious. It’s my goal to help families enjoy this transitional time. I provide care for the mother, so she is better able to care for her baby. As a postpartum doula, my goal is to use my training, resources and life experiences to be of service to the family in whatever capacity is needed. I offer evidence-based information on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from childbirth, infant soothing and coping skills. I have experience with singletons as well as twins. My husband James and I are proud parents of three young adults.
